In Plain Sight: The London Group is an exhibition of major new works from The London Group in a range of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and film. Each artist in the exhibition has hidden something of their choice in a new piece of work. The aim is to entice gallery visitors to look much harder and closer than usual at each work to detect what is hiding ‘in plain sight’.
Alongside this exhibition is a coordinating show: ‘Thelma Hulbert and her London Group friends’. With key works from the THG collection and loans of pieces by pivotal London Group members Claude Rogers, William Coldstream and Victor Pasmore, this exhibition explores Thelma’s creative friendships, artistic legacy and place within British Art.
